Chapter IV - An Unexpected AltercationAfter all the excitement of the ball and several days of travel, the Caelestis Edenia finally docks back on the campus island. No doubt, most are eager to finally get off the ship while talking about all the exciting things that have happened. Professor Tien is one of the last to disembark, and he takes the other teachers aside to discuss a few important matters. Anyone nearby may overhear something of exams...Suddenly, a long, dragon-like creature flies in and lands before them all, dwarfing even the magnificent airship, and four people--the spring ball hosts?!--jump off its neck and point at Tien all at once.Hosts
: YOU. You jerk! Hand over the Crystal of Miracles now!Tien
: Um... Sylph
: Oh don't play dumb--we know it was you! You're the one who knocked us out, just when we were gonna make that crystal our most valuable treasure!Monome
: You completely ruined our perfect plan to be the ball hosts to get everyone's guards down, then take the crystal and fly off without a trace while they blame all of you!Sarama
: Zzz...! Oh, yeah...we were gonna be the most powerful pirates in the world.Diunne
: When we woke up it was gone, and you're the only one who could have taken it.Tien facepalms tiredly, already unamused by their antics.Tien
: Even if I did, what makes you think that you can--Suddenly, the shortest one of their group--the blonde-haired girl with the pointed ears--vanishes...then reappears, holding a small, palm-sized crystal. She giggles and winks at the headmaster.Tien, for his part, blinks before suddenly patting down his body.Tien
: So we underestimated you a bit. We're not doing that again. Farewell, ahahaha!The four pirates bow, leap back onto their dragon, and take to the air in a flash.Tien
SSLDKFAHDGHSKDFJ--A short amount of time later, Tien gathers everyone at the Academy for an emergency meeting. His face is very dour...moreso than usual.Tien
: Everyone, this is an emergency. That crystal that they took, the Crystal of Miracles, is a very powerful artifact. It's said to have enough power to give life itself...but in the wrong hands, it could cause another disaster like the one we had several months ago. We need to get it back. If nothing else,consider this your exam
--everyone onto the airship!As soon as they're ready, the ship departs once more, this time chasing after the dragon. The Caelestis Edenia more than proves it is top of the line, easily catching up with the creature. The four, of course, take notice.Sylph
: Oh, you really are chasing after us. All right girls (and guy, and Monome I don't even know about you...but girls is just me and Diunne so uh...girl, singular? My head...), attack! Let's show 'em how it's done!The dragon swoops over the ship, and three of the four pirates drop down from its back...and summon monsters!
Semester 5 ExamEDIT: Here is the list of students and the exams they are taking.
Please sign up on the comment section below to let the world know which scenario you are choosing. I'll attach a link to the list later. That'll help your fellow students to coordinate collaboration effort and to get the permission for their OCs cameo appearance. Please include your name, your OC's name, and house name. Thank you for your help!
You heard that right folks--it's exam time, and here's what's going down!
Three of the four pirates--Monome, Sarama and Diunne--are attacking on the deck with their attacks and their summons.
The pirates' dragon pet is directly attacking the ship with blasts of wind breath, and its huge size and power make it very difficult to take down.
Finally, Tien is going to confront the last pirate, Sylphie, and take the crystal back.
